Helen & Ben

What inspired you to get married in Morzine?

The beautiful scenery, good skiing and that my sister’s apartment is a 15 minute drive away! We wanted our wedding to be unique and didn’t feel the English venues were able to provide this.

Did you find it easy to find your perfect wedding venue?

It was quite time consuming to find our venue, as most chalets and hotels weren’t able to seat 50 plus people. We did visit a couple of venues and then settled on Ferme d’Elise and Le Crepet in Morzine as felt the owners Sharon and Craig could help create the perfect wedding.

Where did you get married?

We had our wedding blessing at Lac Montriond in Morzine but our legal ceremony was at a registry office in the UK.

How easy was it for you to plan the various elements of your wedding from the UK?

I didn’t really find it a problem organising our wedding from another country. If our wedding was in the UK we would still need to email and make phone calls etc. The internet really helped too, we even used Skype to speak to our videographer Stew Monk at Reel Wedding Films. The most time consuming part was actually helping to organise a holiday for 60 people! Answering various questions like ‘does Morzine have a cash machine’?!
